Accepting your offer

If you’ve applied or are considering applying for an undergraduate course at Murdoch, here’s what you need to know about receiving and accepting an offer:

  • Whether you applied through TISC or directly to Murdoch, you’ll receive your offer by email, so keep an eye on your inbox.
  • When you receive an offer, you need to respond to it by the deadline noted in the email or apply for an extension. For any questions about TISC offers, check out the TISC website. How you respond will depend on whether you are a domestic or international student, or have applied to Murdoch through one of our off-campus partners.
  • If you don’t receive an offer, don't panic. Remember, there’s more than one way to get into Murdoch. We’re here to help, so speak to us about admission pathways.

    • the reason you want to defer

  • Packaged students

    You may receive an offer if you have completed a course with one of our off-campus partner institutions. If you are an international student, this offer will allow you apply for a visa covering the full duration of your course in Australia.

Step 2. Enrol online

Once you’ve accepted your offer, login to MyInfo to plan your course, choose your units and lock in your timetable for the semester.

You should plan to devote around 10 hours of study per week for each three-point unit you enrol in.

If you are a domestic student, you can choose between part-time (typically between one and three units per semester) or full-time (four units equalling 12 credit points) study. If you are an international student you will be required to study a full-time load of 12 points per semester.

  • Check out the units you need to enrol in using our online handbook. Write down the unit code for each unit you plan to enrol in and check that each unit will be offered in the upcoming semester.
  • In MyInfo, complete the self-enrolment steps.
  • After you have completed self-enrolment, go back to MyInfo and select Class Sign-up. Here you can choose your classes and finalise your timetable.

If you need help or are considering a double major, contact a Student Advisor to help plan your enrolment.

  • Go to course advice sessions for your study area
  • Take a tour of the campus
  • Sign up for a student card
  • Join the Guild
  • Buy a parking permit or sign up for a public transport concession card

You’ll also have the chance to meet new people, join social groups and clubs, check out facilities including our on-campus gym, enjoy a free sausage sizzle and be part of some fun events, music and activities all around the campus.

International orientation is compulsory. Students should take note of the orientation date on their offer letter and plan their travel to arrive in time for orientation.
